Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Reaching for the stars: New Ontario Tech research on the health of astronauts in space

For more than 20 consecutive years, there’s been an uninterrupted human presence on the International Space Station (ISS). This year, the orbiting living lab will get an important new research boost from Canada’s space science community—research closely tied to Ontario Tech University computer science and health analytics expert Dr. Carolyn McGregor AM.

Teaching and learning with technology: What’s next?

From Monday, August 16 through Thursday, August 19, Ontario Tech University's Faculty of Education will host its Teaching and Learning with Technology conference, featuring dozens of 60-to-90-minute highly supportive workshops that focus on the most current, evidence-based use of technology in online, blended learning and in-person environments.

UN International Atomic Energy Agency designates Ontario Tech as a Collaborating Centre

The United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirms Ontario Tech’s designation as an official Collaborating Centre in support of IAEA activities on integrated Energy Systems with advanced nuclear power reactors including small modular reactors (SMRs) as well as initiatives such as non electric applications of nuclear energy.

Small modular reactors: The dawn of a new era of Canadian nuclear energy

Small modular reactors (SMR) aim to renew the way Ontario, and Canada, produces nuclear energy in the longer term. In 2019, Ontario signed an inter-provincial Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) related to SMR development, an agreement that connects provincial governments and power utilities in New Brunswick and Saskatchewan. Alberta has now joined the MOU, further solidifying Canada as a global leader in this emerging technology.
